ANDERSON WINS SLM AND GOMES WINS SRL AT THE BULLRING

LAS VEGAS - Second-generation racer David Anderson won tonight's 40-lap NASCAR Super Late Model feature at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Jim Petrie started the 40-lap grind from the pole position, flanked by David's father, Steve Anderson. The race was one-quarter of one lap old when the caution flew for a tangle involving Bear Rzesnowiecky, Robert Ewing and Dylan Kwasniewsky in Turn 1. Kwasniewsky fell victim again on the restart when Jim Petrie spun and collected him and Glen Burke in Turn 1. (Kwasniewsky finally left the field with his damaged car on lap 19.) To quote baseball legend Yogi Berra, it was "deja-va all over again" as the field scrambled on the restart once more -- this time in Turn 4 -- when Scott Gafforini made contact with race leader Steve Anderson. When the field finally settled down, David Anderson led the field, followed by Robert Ewing and Jay Beasley. The well-worn caution flag was whipped into service once again on lap 10 for a crash in Turn 4 involving Ewing and Steve Anderson. David Anderson led the remaining five cars around the track, followed by Gafforini and Beasley. Beasley slowed and left the fray with just four laps remaining. Anderson survived the final restart and held off Gafforini to score his first win of 2011. Kenny Smith of Bakersfield, Calif. was third and Beasley and Ewing completed the top five.

LUCAS OIL MODIFIEDS: Hometwon hero Doug "Hound Dog" Hamm started the GEICO 75 from the pole position, flanked by Mike Salm. Hamm, a 50-time winner at the Bullring, cruised comfortably for the first 50 laps until Kwasniewsky -- pulling double duty tonight -- arrived on the scene with 25 laps remaining. Kwasniewsky started seventh and progressed methodically up through the field to challenge Hamm in the waning laps. With only a handful of laps remaining, the leaders encountered heavy lapped traffic. Kwasniewski was challenging Hamm for the lead, was tapped from behind by Scott Winters and spun. With eight laps remaining, the GEICO 75 restarted with Hamm in the lead with Jim Mardis on his tail. On lap 68, Mardis spied an opening an punched the throttle to propel his Modified to the inside of Hamm but was unable to complete the pass. Mardis and Hamm ran side-by-side for nearly two laps until Criag Stewart spun in Turn 3 to slow the race's pace once again. The red flag was thrown on lap 69 when Craig Stewart and John Thompson crashed in Turn 1. Neither driver was injured by the race was red-flagged in interest of fuel consumption. Disaster struck on the restart as Hamm's car was unable to fire. The predicted two-car, five-lap shootout was not to be as Mardis inherited the lead as Hamm was relegated to the rear of the field. Mardis went on to win, followed by Shelby Stroebel and Tim Morse. Hamm, who led most of the race, had to settle for 15th place. Larry Gerchman won the Lucas Oil Modified B-Feature. The Dart Trophy Dash was won by Scott Winters.

SPEARS SRL LATE MODELS: Jacob Gomes of Manteca, Calif. won tonight's Blackjack 121 for the Spears SRL Late Model Series. April 2 Bullring SRL winner M.K. Kanke finished second and veteran Jim Pettit II was third. The red flag flew with just 18 laps remaining as points leader Derek Thorn's car caught fire and stopped in Turn 4. He exited the car quickly and the fire was extinguished. Twelve cars finished on the lead lap.

The 25-lap NASCAR Bomber feature was won by Pete Meyer. Meyer had the field covered and his competitors could only watch him romp to his second win of the 2011 campaign. Ben "Big Jim" Sherard was second and Jason Kiser finished third.

Travis Boyle won his second USLCI Thunder Roadster feature tonight. Michelle Williamson finished second and Herb Williamson was third.

C.J. Hulsey won his second Saturday-night Semi-Pro/Young Lion Legend Cars feature of the 2011 season. Finishing second and third were Kyle Niquette and Ian Anderson. Justin Irwin won the 20-lap Pro/Masters Legend Cars feature aheadof Jason Irwin and Josh Fultz.
